While sweeping in its scope, the work bears witness to one man's examination of his familial roots and ethnicity, and the ways in

FROM TRINITY TO TRINITY recounts the pilgrimage of Japanese atomic-bomb survivor Kyoko Hayashi to the Trinity Site in northern New Mexico, where the world's first atomic bomb test was conducted. Her journey takes her into unfamiliar terrain, both past and present, as she not only confronts American attitudes, disconcertingly detached from the suffering of nuclear destruction, but discovers as well a profound kinship with desert plants and animals, the bomb's first victims.

Yet “Stanland” is still, to many, a terra incognita, a geographical blank.Beginning in the mid-1990s, academic and journalist David
